Semi-Permanent Micropigmentation (Microblading) Fact Sheet

Get brows that Wow!

 

Indications: This treatment is for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, fill-in over plucked brows, add a slight arch or define their faded brows.

Definition: Microblading is a manual method of implanting pigment with hair-like strokes into the dermis to create a fuller, more defined looking brow. It is a semi-permanent procedure and the pigment used is designed so that the color will be processed and fade away, allowing the look to be changed as years pass. Microblading creates subtle, natural-looking brows.

Frequency: After the initial treatment, a touch up is required one month later to maintain the definition and color saturation. Further touch ups are recommended every six months to a year, to keep the color fresh and the strokes crisp.

Pre-Procedure:

  1. Avoid plucking, waxing or threading for one week prior to appointment.

  2. Prep skin for treatments--avoid heavy exfoliation, chemical products etc. Gently cleanse skin the night before and use a light moisturizer and sunscreen.

  3. Prior to the treatment, the Micropigmentation Technician will work with you to determine what your desires are regarding the outcome of your brow, working with the brow bone and the structure of the face to ensure symmetry is achieved.

What Should Clients Expect?

  • Microblading is a two step treatment, consisting of an initial procedure and then a touch up four to eight weeks after. After we take your before photo, the Technician will measure and shape your eyebrows and decide on the color. Shortly after that, a topical anesthetic will be administered to ensure comfort. Once numb, the pigment will be deposited.

  • The procedure takes roughly two hours. Please allow a solid two and a half hour window for your appointment. We likely won’t need that much time, but this isn’t something we want to rush.

  • The healing process is different for everyone and it takes between 7-20 days for the epithelial crust to form and slough off. During healing, it's normal to experience some pigment loss, thus the importance of the touch-up procedure. The process is considered to be complete 4 weeks after the first touch up.

  • Minimal downtime is associated with the treatment. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after. Your brows will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from your activities of daily living.

  • 5 - 30% fade in color over 45 days.

  • After the treatment, keep your brow area clean and dry. A post care sheet will be provided to further outline the requirements.

Possible Side Effects:

  • Transient redness, mild swelling, crusting.

  • All patient concerns, side effects and complications should be addressed and documented.
